Pokémon FireRed Version (ポケットモンスターファイアレッド Pocket Monsters FireRed) and Pokémon LeafGreen Version (ポケットモンスターリーフグリーン Pocket Monsters LeafGreen) are remakes of the Pokémon Red and Blue games. These games, like the original, take place in the Kanto region and also includes the Sevii Islands which were not in the original. Though these games are remakes of the Generation I games, they are considered to be Generation III games, now with better graphics and many new features.

Plot

The player character starts out in Pallet Town. When the player character tries to leave the town without a Pokémon of their own, they are stopped in the nick of time by Professor Oak, who invites them to his lab. There, he gives them a Pokémon of their own and a Pokédex, telling them about his dream to make a complete guide on every Pokémon in the world. After the player character battles their rival and leaves the lab, they are entitled to win every Gym Badge, compete in the Pokémon League, and fulfill Oak's dream by catching every Pokémon.

Locations

These following locations are from the Sevii Islands:

Changes

Red and Leaf.

The following are the new changes and upgrades made to Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen from the original games, Pokémon Red and Green.

  • The player can choose to play as a male or female character. Red, the male player and Leaf, the female character.
  • Pokémon from the Generation II and Generation III games can be obtained. However, only a few Generation II Pokémon that aren't part of the Hoenn Pokédex entries can be found in these versions without having to trade from Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.
  • A new area, the Sevii Islands, can be accessed.
  • The Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter can be used and is packed with the game.
  • Pokémon now have genders, natures, and abilities.
  • Pokémon can now hold items.
  • Pokémon are now able to breed, once reaching Four Island on the Sevii Islands during the post-game quest.
  • Pokémon can now evolve into forms available in other generations, with the exception of Pokémon such as Umbreon and Espeon. While these Pokémon can still reach maximum happiness, as there is no internal clock in FR/LG, the game is unable to determine what time it is, and as such is unable to evolve Eevee based on the time of day.
  • Moves from Generation II and III are now available.
  • TM's from Generation III are now used.
  • The Elite Four can be re-challenged, with new Pokémon teams consisting of at least one Generation II Pokémon.
  • Ponyta, Magmar (LeafGreen only), and Moltres have been moved from their original location to One Island's Kindle Road and Mt. Ember.

Trivia

  • The mysterious truck near the SS Anne makes another appearance in the FireRed and LeafGreen games. This time around Strength can actually be used on it and the player receives a Lava Cookie, referencing the (false) rumor that the truck had a Poké Ball containing Mew underneath it in the original games.
  • These are the only remakes to not be the final games of their respective generations. HeartGold and SoulSilver were the final releases of Generation IV, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were the final releases of Generation VI, and Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are the final releases of Generation VII.
  • In the Pewter Museum, the model space shuttle has been renamed from Space Shuttle Columbia from Generation I to Space Shuttle. The Columbia was destroyed in a tragic explosion before the game's release on February 1, 2003. This name was kept in the Japanese version but was removed in the localized versions.
  • These games are so far the only Pokémon games that show commercials of it a year after it was made.
  • Although it wasn't released outside of Japan, Green was still remade, making Western players confused, since Pokémon Red and Blue was released in Northern America and Europe instead of Pokémon Green.
